Western Beauty


This week’s photo, taken May 8, 2017 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features one of the most attractive warblers in the western half of North America, the TOWNSEND’S WARBLER.

In case some of you in the eastern half of the continent are suddenly stricken with warbler-envy because you are just now realizing that you’ve never seen a Townsend’s Warbler in your neck of the woods, calm yourself down and remember this: you have about 30 varieties of warblers that we never or rarely find out west. So, in the warbler department, you eastern bird-watchers are doing just fine.

Nevertheless, the Townsend’s is a good-lookin’ bird, isn’t it?

    The bird is sitting on a juniper branch – I have a row of them outside my office window, and that is where the Townsend’s Warbler often shows up. Not so far this year tho.
